UK writer whose death-date is undetermined: he may have been the AD who died in Australia in 1953. He was best known for The Radium Terrors (1912), which combines Yellow Peril fears with the then widespread fascination for the powers of radium. The plot unmemorably details a conspiracy on the part of the former to use the latter. The Half-God (1933) features super-radium.
   Other works: Our Lady of the Leopards (1911), a fantasy.
